X)on't accept any thinr but Jap-a-lac. This caution- is for your own protection as there are inferior articles offered as substitutes and claimedto te'just as good" and this imitation is one of best proofs that Jap-a-Jac is beat. iBome these imitations have names ending-in thus trying' to imitate as-nearly possible not only the goods, but also the name. Vsure the ull.word Jap-a-lac appears on the label then you are sure of the' best results. Jap-a-lac is used for refinishiner everything- about the house from cellar to garret.

It produces the beautiful lustrous mirror-like finish that "wears like iron." It will save you many dollars a year by its magical work. Stairways and stair-rails ought to have coating of Jap-a-lac every year; in that way you can keep them alwavs looking nice fresh and new and the expense is trifling, because you can do the work yourself. There are a number of suitable, colors you can use and a hundred uses for each color.

That was evidently the theory that the banquet committee of the Lan- sing Ep worth League had in view when they got ready their little spread for Friday night's entertainment. "One hundred and twenty-five persons were seated at the tables which were artistically arranged with pretty china.

Dark red carnations and big fern leaves were scattered over the white spreads, aiding in the color scheme of red and white which was gracefully brought out on the stage by draperies of fish net and. crimson bells, while from a back-ground of solid red the red and white waa draped in festoons over the tables of the banqueters. L. J. Herwig, who made an excellent toastmaster, received at his table the moral support of: Chaplain and Mrs.

Axton of Port Leavenworth, Miss Margaret Fulton, Mrs. W. A. Thompson and Prof. T.

Williams Pearman of Leaven-- worth and Bar. Gordon B. Thompson. The program which filled in the waits between the ouTse was well received, the musical numbers being especially good. Prof T.

Williams Pearman, who sang two solos, was heard for the first time in Lansing and the hearty encores which ha received showed that his songs made a hit. Other musical numbers which were greatly enjoyed were piano solos by Miss Sarabelle Herwig and Miss Maggie fulton-and a song by the M. E. quartette Chaplain Axton of Fort Leavenworth who was down on the program to talk on "Some Things' made those things so interesting thai the guests forgot all about their coffee. In his usual bright way the chaplain "got next" to his audience as though he were talking to one man instead of a crowd.

She called at his and literally obeying the instructions of the the young man was not to be disturbed, the family refused permission to her to see him. Thereupon Cupid, intent on making a complete job of what he had begun, interposed once more, pressed into service a willing valet, who carried out a note to the weeping bride, and within fifteen minutes after the note had been written, husband and wife were holding loving conversation over a telephone that had thoughtfully been placed at the bedside of the sick man. Cupid had many times before laughed at locksmiths. This time he had a good laugh, and added the telephone to his list of first aids to the lovelorn. There followed them briBk but brief warfare, in the course of which the young wife appealed to the law, but scorned to have her husband arrested, and finally won over the stony-heartei parents.

On a night in October last the husband, accompanied by John Ascher, saw his wife in company with' another woman and two men making the rounds of the various restaurants and concert saloons in the Tenderloin. Eventually they entered a hotel.

The husband met the wife aftward. It was their last meeting. "For Heaven sake. sh.i cried, "don't make a scene on the uunvny of our old love." And on the memory of their old love he didn't "I will not oppo.i 3 a uivorc, if you want she said. Nor did she.

A preacher can generally do that, you know. Then he told a story of another pullet or rather a bunch of pullets and their little brothers, Johnnie and Jim-cjnie. One day Johnnie came flying back the brood and the watchful mother cried, "Johnnie, where i3 your brother Jimmie?" "Oh," cried, her excited son, "Mother, fear he has entered the ministry."

The act is a reproduction, and a much more difficult one, than that witnessed in Ringling Bros, circus. The inclosure is much smaller, making the riding much more difficult and dangerous. The audience is in a thrill of intense excitement throughout this performance and are greatly relieved when the riders cease.

The riders wheel around In the bowl like enclosure at a terrific speed and at times run so closely to the rim that the audience is held spell bound for fear they will fly over. This daring act has been th marvel of eastern theatres and summer resorts in the east and never fails to draw large crowds.
